about

Elise Brianne Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico

Western New York born and raised songbird sings solo songs in coffeehouses and dimly lit bars from the Northeast to the Pacific Northwest.

Trades in cozy chambers for the open road: slumbering under star-filled skies and communing with the moon. Festivals and campfires...

Follows the sunshine to the southwest and settles in a hot springs town in the high desert: soaking, singing, strumming...

Track Name: Moon Song
Moon Song...

I died, and they told me it's not the end. I'm just dreaming again.
I dreamed that I was a single seed, storms blowing over me...
and the moon, oh how she speaks to me, so sweetly,

Go to sleep... Close your eyes.
Let me sing you a lullaby.
You can't count the stars. You can't count the stars...

I rise out my body, roll through the air, float out the window and you're holding my hand in the tunnel of white light with the wolves all around me, the red-eyed man in the corner, yeah you show me what they'd do if it wasn't for you.

Oh, we're flying so high now. We're flying so high...
I can't count the stars. Can't count the stars...

But I can still see the moon.
I can still see the moon.
I can still see her.
I can still see.
Track Name: Look at the Stars
Open your eyes. Look at the stars, watch the moonrise, see the trees--how they dance, sway with the breeze.

And the grace, it'll spill all around you. Kiss your face, overwhelm and astound you.

Open your heart, and the love will pour right out. All those old wounds--see how they bleed when you let them go.

And the grace, it'll spill all around you. Kiss your face, overwhelm and astound you. And the mercy, oh the mercy, and beauty.

Open your mind. Know that you don't know everything... is gonna be fine.
Just give it some time.

And the grace, it'll spill around you. Kiss your face, overwhelm and astound you. And the mercy, oh the mercy, and beauty.

You are beautiful the way you are, the way you flow.
And everything you want to be you already are.
You are mercy, and beauty.
Track Name: Under Fire
You called me late last night, said something’s not right.
I’m curled up in my bed with no lights on
and my heart is so… under fire.

I fell in love again, and now I’m broken open
I know that he’s no good for me.
Mmm but he’s such sweet company,
and I’ve been needing him to keep me warm and hold me close and we make such beautiful music.

Oh, yeah. La dee da…

My heart is so… under fire.

I lost my lover, we went undercover, we were on the run.
I put on my red shoes, my little black jacket and I got my gun.
Run, run, run. Oh, he said run, run, run.

Why don’t you pour me another one? Pour me another one.
Pour me another one, pour me another one.
(And I’ll watch my life flash before my eyes in an endless haze of moonrise sunrise. Oh, the liquor goes down smooth, tastes so sweet, leaves me cold and hungry for you. Hungry for you.)

I fell in love again, and now I’m broken
open.
Track Name: Outside Our Bodies
He turned to me, said, "Do you remember anything that would make him want to hurt himself in such a way?"
I closed my eyes.
I couldn’t believe he had no memory...

We are… we are… we are…
floating outside our bodies in the rain while the car is driving down
this road. We’re going down, down, down this road again.
Down, down, down this road again.

He turned to me, said, "Do you remember anything that would make him want to hurt himself in such a way?"
I closed my eyes.
I couldn’t believe he had no memory...

We are… we are… we are…
(I lay by his bed and held his hand. His eyes fluttered open, then closed again. The poison ran through his yellowed skin. I hung my head as he started to shake…)
floating outside our bodies in the rain while the car is driving down
this road. We’re going down, down, down this road again.
Down, down, down this road again.

And the rain, coming down, down, down.
And the rain, coming down, down, down.
And the rain, pouring down, down, down.
Track Name: My Love
Sun rises slowly, brightening my view.
Birds sing their songs, light is shining through.

I belong to you. I belong to you. I belong to you.

Clouds fill the sky, darkening my view.
Rain pouring down, I’m falling out of tune.

I belong to you. I belong to you. I belong to you.

All of my love.
All of my life.

And I’ll be so accommodating. I’ll give you all I have.
Then maybe you’ll never leave me, and you’ll give me all you can.
But you don’t need anybody. You can do this on your own.
No you don’t need anybody.

(I belong to you. I belong to you. I belong to you.)

Sun rises slowly, brightening my view.
Clouds fill the sky, but light is shining through.
